A top Republican finally distanced himself from Donald Trump.
Mitch McConnell has boasted to colleagues and reporters in Kentucky that he knew better than going to Amy Coney Barrett’s Superspreader event in the Rose Garden or stepping into the 18-acre magical mind known as the White House for seeing that The President and his team were concerned about the danger. At 78, the shrewd Senate majority leader, a polio survivor, took no chances.
“I haven’t been to the White House since August 6,” he said at a press conference at home, “because my impression was that their approach was different from mine and I insisted we do it.” Senate, the wear a mask and practice social distancing. “
McConnell distanced himself from Trump more than just physically. He also distanced himself politically, throwing cold water on the president’s whiplash-inducing reversal.
After torpedoing negotiations in a tweet Tuesday for thinking the Democrats wanted too much, the steroid-pumped president made a triple axis and tweeted to Congress to say, “Go Big!”
“I honestly would like a bigger stimulus package than Democrats or Republicans are offering,” he told Rush Limbaugh in a manic two-hour phone call Friday (where he dropped the F-bomb on Iran). “I’m going exactly the opposite now.”
Obviously, McConnell doesn’t want to invest whatever capital he has left to revive Trump when the guy seems doomed. Why bring up an issue that really divides its Republican members – in balance with the Senate – weeks before an election that could be an obliteration?
McConnell is all about winning. He knows a loser when he sees one. As Alex Conant, a Republican strategist, told the New York Times, Trumpworld is at a dangerous pass: “The knives are coming out, the donors are fleeing, and the candidate is throwing an embarrassing hail of Marys.”
Again proving that there is no need to go deep, McConnell told reporters in Kentucky that he was unwilling to enter into a recovery agreement because “the situation is a little bleak and I think the gloom is a consequence of it.” the proximity to the elections and anyone trying to bow to political advantage. “
So it’s okay to opt for a political advantage and replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg with an archconservative who would threaten health and abortion law near the elections. But a bill that would help millions of suffering Americans when the economy goes under? No no. It’s too cloudy.
Speaking to Limbaugh, Trump had a rare moment when he sounded vulnerable before returning to his bombastic self. “I said, ‘How bad was I?'” He recalled. “They said, ‘You could have been very bad. You were in a very bad phase. ‘”
The president continued, “It looks like it’s going to be a big deal. And you know what that means, that means bad because I lost five people, at least five people who were friends of mine, especially one like an incredible guy who went to the hospital there where he was dead for 3 days . “
Trump pondered, “I was not in good shape” and said that without this particular cocktail I might not have recovered from Covid at all. (Pretty much the opposite of what he said the day before.)
So did it sink? Did any of it sink? The damage he did to the country by dropping the mask and putting on a blindfold? The danger he put his family, co-workers and supporters in with his portrayal of wearing masks as being effective – the spiritual successor to viewing liberals as latte-loving, tree-hugging, volvo-driving, cabbage-eating losers?
No sooner had Trump admitted that things could have gone very badly than he again made false claims about the virus, telling Limbaugh that the “cure” was now available. And even when Anthony Fauci stated that the ceremony in the rose garden was officially a superspreader event, and Nancy Pelosi mocked Trump over the 25th Amendment, the streamlined president dreamed of more superspreaders.
He was busy tinkering another White House crush on the South Lawn with another bizarre Evita on the balcony for Saturday, and on Monday he’s due to travel to Florida for a “very BIG RALLY!”
Did it sink into the fact that he was losing, that his greatest fear might come true? Did the physical and mental stress of Covid and steroids mix with his feverish fear of hearing “You are fired!” From the American people?
Was that why he tweeted a crazy video in Bronzeface begging for the voices of seniors, many of whom may slip away from feeling betrayed about his failure of the virus?
Was that why he asked Bill Barr to prosecute Barack Obama and Joe Biden and call Kamala Harris “a monster” and scold Hillary’s emails? Is that why he withdrew from the debate?
Was that why he was fighting Gretchen Whitmer in the middle of the FBI who foiled a mind-boggling militia conspiracy to kidnap the Michigan governor?
Did everything finally sink? Or was it just another week on Planet Trump?
